Sector Performance Since Jan 2009

Only 3 sectors managed to stay positive since start of the year, and they barely made it actually. Utilities, healthcare and technology. The rest all had negative returns.

This chart above is similar to the one on top, only difference is the base line is S&P 500. Sectors like Financials, Consumer Discretionary, Industrial and Consumer Staples has since underperformed relative to S&P 500.

I would like to take this chance to recommend a few excellent blog posts from Dr Brett and Trader-X. These posts are already bookmarked under MY DELICIOUS at the left hand column, but in case you missed it, here they are:
